This interesting building with lovely gardens around could be attractive if the Council promoted it's appeal more frequently .Apart from the odd wedding there is very little use throughout the year. I think it would be ideal for smaller company conferences and other private parties .

Perfect venue for Chris and Faye's wedding. Both before and during the wedding the staff and especially James were excellent helping Chris and Faye have exactly the wedding they wanted. The whole building has so much character and the grounds are beautiful. It really is quite an "undiscovered treasure" and would recommend any couple consider it for their wedding.
